SharePoint 2010 BCS Office Item Types Properties

Posted by Alexander Ketelaar

 I was searching for a list of the properties that you can map in the external content type to office items. Since I couldn't find this list I created a excel sheet with all the possible fields you can use.

Creating a plugin for BCS in Outlook

Posted by Alexander Ketelaar

 In this post I will describe the BCSPackagingTool and BCSArtifactGenerator tools from Microsoft. These tools can create artifacts for building a outlook plugin.

This plugin will use the Business Connectivity Services (BCS) from SharePoint to connect to a external system, in this example a SQL but it could als be a CRM, ERP of whatever application.
